Example text

For instance, “Foucault views the Structuralist movement ironically, as the last phase of a development in the human sciences which began in the sixteenth century, when Western thought fell prey to the illusion that ‘the order of things’ could be adequately represented in an ‘order of words, if only 26 Economic Ironies Throughout History the right order of words could be found’” (White 1973, 24). In that view, the ‘transitions’ which mark the beginnings and ends of the epochs are not ‘transformations’ of an enduring ‘subject,’ but rather ‘ruptures’ in Western consciousness, disjunctions or discontinuities so extreme that they effectively isolate the epochs from one another.

Irony resides in these gaps—for instance, between what is said and the situation described (Giora 2011, 20–21). This allows one to take a scientific approach to irony. For instance, Rachel Giora tested eight hypotheses on three views: direct access view, where strong contextual support is activated immediately; exclusively pragmatic model, where literal interpretation is activated first; and a graded salience hypothesis, where meaning coded and held foremost in our mind cannot be blocked. The test involved a text given to participants who were cued for ironic and non-ironic interpretations.

Now we are beginning to see that irony has a pluralistic form, where speech interacts with context and situations. A new core paradoxical view is now being developed. Paul Simpson has recently drawn on pragmatics of linguistic philosophy to synthesize production and reception of ironies for social and cultural phenomena (Simpson 2011, 33). His survey of irony in that regard brings out a conceptual paradox. He considers binaries about assertion and meaning and between encyclopedic knowledge and situational context as sub-definitions.
